Returning to MP3 car after 7 years
I've been out of the loop for about 7 years, built my carputer pre-PAD/Table days. Now trying to get back in it to put a new system in the car. Not sure where to start or if I really want to put a PC in the car now that there are Tablets and IPAD now. I am not really a big fan of the tables and pads in that you have to always have to buy an app. I like the fact that on a windows or linux machine, I can use the purchased sw on multiple pc's if needed. Anyhow I am looking at a 7"(HDMI) screen that can be seen in the daytime, fast boot time, navigation, internet, and something that can run off 12VDC.
Any ideas where to start?
Also, I am seeing the Ardurino controller, why so many versions and can it be integrated into the buy of the shelf software such as Centrafuse?
